    Default Hurricane Z2772 FT-N 43 Sqn. 24/11/1941

    This A/c crashed on landing at RAF Acklington
    killing the pilot 1263632 Sgt. Owen Nugent Brady RAFVR age 21.

    Can anyone tell me which runway he crashed on ie; N/west, N/East or N/South
    & was it a day or night crash

    thank you for your support.

    Chris,
    The aircraft (Z2772) may not have been a write off as it was delivered (after repair ?) to Russia in Jan 1942. I've an unconfirmed source that BRADY was killed at Cammachmore, Kincardine, flying Z5262 for 4 Del. Flt. Place of death registration may solve the question.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Thank you gents,
    It appears once again another error has been unearthed in a certain book,
    However this also throws up an error in No 43 'Fighting Cocks' Sqn as it lists Brady killed in Z2772
